    I'd like to to upgrade from the Dunlop tires on my SR5 4x4. They're 245/75/16 and the tread isn't that aggressive as some of you may know. I like the wheels so I don't feel the need to upgrade them if it isn't necessary to accomodate the larger tires.

    I'm looking @ 265/75/16 BFG ATs or Goodyear Dura-Tracs.

    1: Will I run into any fitment problems since my wheel is only 7" wide?

    2: Perhaps some rubbing problems inside the wheel well?

    FWIW, I'm going to level the front out with some Bilstein 5100s...

    3: Should I do that before I get bigger tires or does it matter?

    Thanks in advance:)

    I switched from the Dunlop 245's to the Duratracs in 265/75/16 earlier this fall. I have had absolutely no rubbing at all on my 4X4 SR5 with no lift... No fitment issues on the stock rims...

    265/75/16 is the biggest tire you can put on a stock Taco without having rubbing issues :)

    These tires are awesome! I think they ride much better than the stock 245/65 Dunflaps. I got these in a 265/75 load range C. I feel like I have more control and it goes over bumps smoother. There is also no rubbing issues whatsoever. If you leave the mudflaps on then there is a chance of rubbing on the flaps because the tires get really close to where the mudflaps are.
